SAECS and MedShuttle to merge

[ September 10, 2013   //   ]

Europe/South  Africa consortium SAECS is merging its operation with the MedShuttle/225 service between January and March. The new joint service will operate with larger vessels and the weekly named day frequency will continue to be maintained by eight vessels with transit times between North Europe and South Africa largely unchanged.

Algeciras in southern Spain will be added in both directions; otherwise port rotations are unchanged.

The Med Shuttle/225 service operated by Maersk/Safmarine between Algeciras and South Africa with MOL and DAL as slot charterers will end from the 4th quarter 2013.
